News has broke this morning that Harry Shearer, the voice of many of the key characters in The Simpsons has been let go by the show.

After voicing half of Springfield since 1989, initial reports say that Shearer wants to do other work, but has been told if he does, he will have to depart company with the iconic show.

The 71-year-old tweeted a couple of quotes from his producer’s lawyer this morning, which say that the show will go on without him.

The tweets suggest that longtime producer, James L Brooks, made the final decision to let him go.

Shearer has voiced the characters of Principal Skinner, Kent Brockman, Mr Burns, Smithers, Ned Flanders, Reverend Lovejoy, Otto and many others for a whopping 26 seasons – since the show first began.

His voice will be truly missed as The Simpsons gears up for a 27th and 28th season – amidst declining ratings.
